Experience the Employment Connection 2017 ended on November 9th in Allentown. Professionals who serve the counties of Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, and Northampton met at Lehigh Carbon Community College to discuss opportunities for interagency collaboration.
This year’s training series encouraged participants to reignite why they do what they do, and redefine how they do what they do, through a series of interactive activities, performed in groups. Participants spent time collaborating with their teams, made up of diverse professionals, to work through the case of an individual they serve.
The greatest benefit to this approach, according to participants, is listening to different perspectives and brainstorming suggestions for employment opportunities.
The Experience the Employment Connection team is excited to see the results of future collaborative efforts across the state of Pennsylvania, and thankful for the opportunity to work with dedicated professionals in the Commonwealth.
